Victoria Falls is located on the border between southwestern Zambia and northwestern Zimbabwe and is accessible from both sides.

The falls are amongst the world’s largest by volume, and also known for being among the most beautiful, earning it status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Victoria Falls is part of the Zambezi River, which is over one mile wide at the point of the falls, making it the largest curtain of falling water in the world. This massive curtain plunges down a series of basalt gorges and raises an iridescent mist that can be seen for many miles around.

There are diverse ways to enjoy the falls, from bridge and hiking tours to boat and airplane tours. Rafting, kayaking, and canoeing are also popular.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
